The Province of the Orange Free State (Afrikaans: Provinsie van die Oranje-Vrystaat), commonly referred to as the Orange Free State Province (Afrikaans: Oranje-Vrystaat Provinsie) was one of the four provinces of South Africa from 1910–1994. After 27 April 1994 it was dissolved following the first multiracial election in South Africa.

Its predecessor was the Orange River Colony.

Its (outside) borders were exactly the same as those of the modern Free State Province; except for the bantustans ("homelands") of QwaQwa and one part of Bophuthatswana, which were contained on land inside of the provincial Orange Free State borders.
